PAWTUCKET â€” Sunday marked the first time Bob Montgomery saw Ryan Lavarnway up close and in person. Studying the Pawtucket Red Sox catcher from the television booth in the press box located high above McCoy Stadium, Montgomery made good use of the monitor adjacent to him, particularly when tracking Lavarnwayâ€™s mitt motion as he received the ball from the pitcher.
WOONSOCKET â€” Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island has mailed 198,000 letters to customers in the Greater Woonsocket area notifying them that the insurance company may no longer do business with Landmark Medical Center and the Rehab Hospital of Rhode Island as of Aug. 1 and Sept. 1, respectively.
That means BCBSRIâ€™s members could still receive treatment at those hospitals, but they would be responsible for dealing directly with Blue Cross for claims reimbursement and paying the hospital out of their own pocket.
